I read reviews on Amazon and other sites and everyone complained about something on these hose reels. This looks well built and of course it will rust if left out year round but I've been using rustoleum spray truck bed liner on such items to protect them(on the chromed parts). So far I like this a lot and caught it on a $25.00 off sale. Oh, and quit blaming China for the fact that no one in the US makes one and if they did, in stainless, be prepared to pony up $300-$400. I bought local to support a local business.
This cart looks great in the picture but it’s cheap. Hardware is cheap. Rims for the tires are either bent or not made completely round, tires go round in a wobbly motion. Hope it will last at least a year. It’s cheap China made. Next time I’m going to search for one that’s USA made.
It's only been 2 years service life and my hose reel is completely rusted on the "stainless looking" crank handle. The bolts that hold that handle are also very rusty. Rest in great shape. Someone either forgot the corrosion treatment or there is a dissimilar metals/chrome coating issue. Should have bought a craftsman or Husky!!!
